It took getting challenged three times for me to do it, but here it is. I will be donating to ALS anyway for four reasons.
1) It's a good cause.
2) I forgot to specifically say that it was the ALS "ice bucket" challenge and I forgot to tell the people I nominated that they have 24 hours to complete the challenge. I think I was a little concerned my kids were going to pour the water on me before I finished talking.
3) I did not do it until over 24 hours after I was first challenged.
4) I am a complete idiot for not nominating my husband.
Now, it's up to you Baby Sideburns, Suburban Snapshots and Jennifer Longworth (who is someone who always comments on my facebook page so I know she'll see it).
If you'd like to donate to ALS (whether or not you dump ice water on your head), you can do it here.
This week's giveaway winners:
Evenflo ProComfort Sympohony DLX Carseat:
Congratulations to Sabrina, who selected randlomly to win an Evenflo Symphony Car Seat! She left the following comment about her worst road trip:
"We took a 16 hour road trip with my 10 month-old daughter and 13 year-old. My baby hates the car seat so when she wasn't sleeping she was crying. The only thing that would distract her was the theme song to Roly Poly Olie over and over. She had at least two diaper blowouts and I had to pull over on the side of the road to breastfeed her several times. It was worth it though to see my family who I only get to see once a year."
Let's hope that road trip is easier next year with your new car seat!
Boogie Wipes Back-to-School Giveaway:
Congratulations to Lindsay O (blog winner) who is praying her son won't hit, bite or rub his snot on someone on the first day of school, Michelle Gengler (facebook winner) who is hoping her girls don't have any missing-mommy-meltdowns and @brookebov, the winner on instagram.
Your kids are one step closer to wiping their own nose without you. Good luck to them on their first day of school!
Visit Boogie Wipes to check out their new 90 count pack. If your kids are anything like mine, you will need it.
Congratulations to Jennifer Lucarelli! You can now buy Max the adorable monkey blanket, the monkey PJs and the monkey plush toy you've been coveting from Apple Park. I guess your kid has a thing for monkeys?
All winners, please contact email@example.com to claim your prize!
The two giveaways still currently open are the Mighty Nest lunchbox gear giveaway and another Evenflo Symphony DLX car seat. And don't forget about the my Method ad campaign contest for the chance to win an $1000 Target gift card.
Hope you are having a good weekend!

Love it! Harlow looks so confused at the end:) Or, upset she didn’t get a chance to dump water on you?
“Harlow didn’t even pour.” Love Mazzy!
I love your husbands evil laugh at the end.
That was awesome. Nice catch on the “oh sh….” Are you plotting Mike’s demise?
O mean mean hubby. And I love how Harlow is just casual about her mother being nearly drowned 😉
Harlow’s reaction is awesome. She’s probably just pissed she didn’t get her chance to dump water too!
I would have kicked mike’s butt that was mean. mazzy is so funny it was like she wanted you to be even more soaked if that was even possible.
Please tell me that you also made a donation. My father in law has ALS, so this is somewhat close to me. I appreciate all of the attention it’s giving ALS, but it would be even better if you provided a link for people to donate. I would prefer if people donated to our team for my FIL here: http://web.alsa.org/site/TR?pg=team&fr_id=10198&team_id=305993 but a general donation works too.
The 2nd sentence says that she will be making a donation.
Oh, that was good.
You’re totally right. Thank you for pointing that out. Sorry I got defensive. I am just frustrated with seeing all these videos online without any mention of the cause or people making a donation. I should know better that Mommy Shorts would do it right!
Thank you for your comment. I added the general donation link for ALS on the post (my bad) and made my donation to your father-in-law’s team. I wish him well and hope you reach your goal!
ha! We did it and then my daughter said we were gonna refill. I said the same thing… I think… “that’s it!”
Thank you so much for updating the post, and your generous donation!
Definitely Mike laughing at the end. I’ve heard that laugh numerous times in my life when I’ve done something stupid in his presence. Remind him that he’s been challenged and needs to get it done. Harlow was too kind.
